Sissie the Cow

Stopped in for some cheese and very Wisconsin of us. So many delicious flavors available! No taste-testing right now due to Covid precautions.

Sissie the Cow

Was very disappointed to learn that Cheese Chalet employees couldn't make Sissie "moo" remotely to startle tourists.

We LOVE Sissy the Cow! Great spot to take a break from driving, stretch your legs, take some pictures with Sissy and buy more cheese and fudge for the ride.

Sissy the Cow

The Cheese Chalet is awesome! So many quirky things there. It has the usual tourist attractions, like cheese, cheese hats, cheese magnets, etc. but you can see Sissy the Cow, a huge fiberglass cow outside; the cheese sign with a mouse climbing up the pole, and it has a sign out front that says how many miles you are from different cities, ranging from Madison to Tokyo. Has a nice kitschy feel to it.

Sissy the Cow's buddy, the Pink Elephant, is just down the street.
